Politics 2016 Election Hillary Clinton Says Bill Clinton Would Be in Charge of the Economy After Election Maya Rhodan @m_rhodan 10:26 AM ET John Sommers II—Getty Images Hillary Clinton addresses the crowd during a campaign stop at the Union of Carpenters and Millwrights Training Center in Louisville, Kentucky, May 15, 2016. If she gets elected president next November Hillary Clinton says she has found a role for her husband, former president Bill Clinton, in her future administration, should she be elected next November. During a campaign stop in Kentucky on Sunday, Clinton said Bill would be in charge of “economic revitalization” if she were to be elected, a role she has hinted at but has not explicitly spelled out. “My husband, who I’m going to put in charge of revitalizing the economy, cause you know he knows how to do it,” Clinton said at a rally on Sunday, ABC News reports. “And especially in places like coal country and inner cities and other parts of our country that have really been left out.” Clinton has previously said her husband has “more ideas a minute than anybody I know,” while talking about jobs in Kentucky earlier this year. There is much speculation about the role Bill Clinton would have in the White House, given that he would be the nation’s first “First Gentleman” and the first former president whose spouse is elected.
